hurricane force winds, though cape cod, nantucket and martha's vineyard and perhaps eastern massachusetts tropical storm force winds, as well. so the effects for us, it does appear that there will be perhaps near tropical storm force winds here across much of the lower eastern shore in this green zone and it will be wet, too, with passing very heavy downpours as bands of heavy done pours oig come in from the atlantic over the eastern shore. but areas generally west of the bay should stay dry as this storm system does go by. now, the wider view for what will be happening here locally next couple of day, we've got this big area of high pressure that's been locked in place that's giving us the hot, dry weather. it will eventually phase, though, as earl approaches and, again, it does appear that earl will stay off the coast, main effects of the storm, strongest winds and heaviest rains off the coast, but we h have perhaps some inland effects. so for this afternoon, it will be sunny, moderate humidity, and poor air quality by midafternoon as the stagnant air will still be in place. so if you h

and then up towards eastern massachusetts and rhode island, as well as connecticut, friday evening, then towards maine, and we're still getting a clip here for cape cod and the islands. then by saturday, it really should be making its way up to eastern canada. precip, we could see a couple of inches on top of what we saw for portions of eastern north carolina, and the heaviest of rain really for new england and eastern long island, but the good news is we've downgraded the storm, so obviously, this is not up to date, so we're down to a cat one, but the track is basically the same, just brushing eastern massachusetts. so we could still see a big hit from the hurricane across this region and we're going to have to monitor that, but the good news is the storm is weakening and it's moving quickly, you know, so we can just cross our fingers jenna. that's the best case scenario and we'll all have a fantastic labor day weekend once earl is out of here. jenna: that sounds perfect, that's the way we want to end the weather report. i know you've got to get back and check those hurricane repo

was it moved right over coastal areas of rhode island and also eastern portions of massachusetts and cape cod, and right up the coastal areas of maine. that's what caused all the damage. if earl stays offshore like this, it's not going to be as bad as bob. all it's going to take is a little bit of a shift to the west, and we could have a lot more damage than what is anticipated. >> david bernard, appreciate the insight, thanks, tonight. now to a scare in the gulf of mexico. at first, it seemed eerily reminiscent of the b.p. disaster. an oil platform exploded and burst into flames today. about 100 miles off the louisiana coast forcing the crew into the water. but that is where the similarities end. end. don teague is in houmla. >> good evening, erica. it was a frightening scene but with a much different outcome than the deepwater horizon tragedy. there was no loss of life and so far we're told there is no oil leaking into the gulf. the first calls for help came at 9:19 this morning when works, or a neighboring rig and helicopter pilots spotted fire aboard an offshore platform called vermilion
